Move folders in user mailbox in exchange 2010 database without access to OWA or Outlook

Hello,
We recently asked for people in our company to clean out their mailboxes of old items.  One person somehow had created all of their folders in the deleted box.  So when they clicked empty deleted items they lost all of their folders.   We can go into the dumpster and recover all of the items but not the folder structure which is a pain since there was near 100 folders.  I can access our backup of exchange on storagecraft and pull it up in a virtual enviroment but for some reason OWA and outlook access are not working, something seems to be screwy with IIS.   I can do all commands I need to via powershell, so does anyone know of a way to move folders in a exchange database via powershell?  I have tried to export the contents as a PST but this also removes the folder structure since they were in the deleted box.  All other folders come out fine.   Is there any tool that can connect and do this?  Open to any options at this point.

It is not possible to recover the folder structure except from the backup. The folder structure is deleted from the server itself so there is no other way to recover it. Tried from MFCMapi but no luck. There is a note in the below article that says folders,subfolders and structures cannot be recovered

If you have a backup before the folder structure easiest you can export to a pst using new-mailboxexportrequest cmdlet. Then attach the pst and move the folders back over if needed.

The problem was she created and maintained the folders as sub-folders of the deleted box.   So there was no structure to recover as far as exchange is concerned.  Finally, after my third attempt at recovering the server in storagecraft I was able to access webmail.  Once I got in webmail I moved all of the folders out of the deleted box and then ran a PST export from powershell.  Everything is good now.  Thanks for the suggestions.
